The First Annual Star Wars Reads Day

Lucasfilm collaborated with its publishing partners to present Star Wars Reads Day this past Saturday, to promote reading in children. Events were held at bookstores all over. Geeks Are Sexy covered the event at Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, Georgia. Those who attended included members of the 501st and Rebel Legions, fans in costume (both children and adults), and celebrity Ashley Eckstein, who is the voice of Ahsoka in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and also designs Star Wars clothing for Her Universe.
